About Riyoga


Why hello there. I go by Riyoga, and I’m an anime blogger.

…That’s all I’ve got.

Enjoy your stay.


Hmm… where to start.

Well, I originally came up with the screen name ‘Riyoga’ a few years ago, when I started playing Mabinogi. I didn’t want to use my usual MMO names because I wanted an Eastern-sounding one. I kept hitting the ‘random name’ button on some site until I got one that had a “Ri” in it, and one that had a “Yoga” in it. Using my vast intellect, I put those two together, and thus, Riyoga was born.

I don’t play Mabinogi anymore, though.


Oh hi, I decided to compress this giant wall of text into this overly long sentence and hyperlink that leads you to my “My History With Anime” post since it says basically the exact same stuff that was here along with some more details.


My site template apparently does not like sub-pages, so I’m forced to put the link for it here, rather than there being a drop-down option. Oh well.


If you ever want to get ahold of me for any reason, there’s a few ways to do it.

Email: riyoga0@gmail.com
MAL: Riyoga’s MAL
Steam Account: Riyoga

If you contact me any of those ways, refer to me as ‘Riyoga’, or just make sure I couldn’t mistake your message for spam. It’s not too hard to do, but if I think it’s spam, I’m going to delete and/or block the message and sender. Spam mail sucks.

    I had good fun reading this. Kudos to the honesty and brofist to the hentai introduction.

    I suggest you copy that “How I Got Into Anime” part, write a bit more about your recent anime experiences and paste it in a new post called “My History With Anime”. It’s an aniblogger project that Nopy started a while back (still going strong).

      Thanks for the suggestion; maybe I’ll do that for my next editorial post (though the topic doesn’t really count as being an editorial, but whatever).

    At around 10:30 PM EST (idk what time you’re on, PST?), I decided that I should start working on your banner. I made one, and then I thought, ‘Well, maybe it’s too girly…’

    And so I made another.
    And another
    and another

    I ended up making four banners (just finished the last; it’s 1 AM), and I really hope you like at least one. They’re actually really fun to make, so if you ever want me to make one, or you want one with a show that is airing currently, just let me know.

    Anyway, I’m going to e-mail them to you, like, right now. xD

    • Riyoga says:

      Yup, I’m on PST.

      Ooh, four banners! That’s pretty awesome. Not to mention, I love them all. Thanks a ton!

      Hmm, I might just take you up on that offer. It’d be cool to have at least one new banner each season for a “this is my favorite show of the season” kind of deal.
      In fact, if you could do one for Tiger & Bunny, that’d be fantastic. It’s technically not starting next season, but it’s carrying over so I’m counting it anyways. Not to mention it won’t stop being awesome.

      By all means, decline if you don’t want to, or take your time if you do. I don’t want to have you working on a banner if there’s something else you’d rather be doing.

      • Nadja says:

        Awesome! I’m really happy you like them. I know they’re not all that fancy or fantastic, but I hope they serve as nice banners. :)

        Okay, well, I just made a Tiger & Bunny one. It’s really simplistic… I’ll send it to you through e-mail.

        • Riyoga says:

          You are a machine. An awesome machine.

          They are simple, but that’s all I really wanted. I don’t need anything super fancy.

  3. Nadja says:

    I’m really glad that you like them. :)

    If you ever want another banner made, let me know, and I’ll be right on it. :)

    Oh so that’s why you love Shana so much! Wow! Thats a touching story. I started out anime with pokemon and Naruto then bleak just like you! We have a lot in common my sweet~

    I had to giggle at the sailor moon transformation reference.

    Also props from me for getting my the hentai back door so to speak. :-)

    • Riyoga says:

      The Sailor Moon transformation sequence: every little boy’s secret indulgence. Or at least that’s what I like to think. It helps me sleep at night.

      >hentai back door

      Oh god, so many bad images just flooded in. MAKE THEM STOP.

    Very interesting on how you got the name “Riyoga” ^_^

  7. Hello, @Riyoga. This is the first time I visited your blog and I saw the blogroll in your blog. Do you mind if I want to exchange blog link? I will paste your blog link in this page.
